Sam and Ross Like Things is a fortnightlyish podcast where two friends, Sam and Ross, each describe a thing that they like. The one rule is “no hedging”—you just have to unabashedly like your thing. As of today, we’ve done 50 episodes which is 49 more than we initially predicted.
Twice-monthly broadcast from our boat to yours. Friendly radio murmurs on books, art, weather, memory, sex, science, the occult, family, relationships, etc. Ideally the feeling of riding sleepy in the backseat on a road trip in the dark while your friends, who are driving, talk to each other and you drift in and out. Sporadic continuity, amiable guests. [more inside]
I made a free 8-week fiction writing course in podcast form. [more inside]
What began as an exploration of my love of weird western stuff has evolved into a discussion of creativity and the professional market for creative undertakings, with a lot of little side trips into the worlds of wrestling, polka, horseback riding, rattlesnake chili, and whatever else attracts our attention at the moment. Cohosted by Coco Mault.
Canadian law is fun and cool and exciting! Every three weeks, we release another podcast where we take something in the news or the general cultural conversation in Canada, and break down how the law applies. The web link works, but it's better to look it up & subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, etc. [more inside]
A colleague and I, both of us academic librarians, have a podcast where we interview our Library and non-Library colleagues about their work. So far, we've covered everything from technology to open access to midwifery to stand-up comedy.

It's a podcast! Richard Platel (me) and Liz Walker discuss this week's episode of the Canadian edition of Bake Off, The Great Canadian Baking Show.
A different theme each week! MeFite Kitteh and I co-host a Saturday-morning radio show at CFRC in Kingston, Ontario, and for over three years we've picked a weekly theme and explored it through music, in every style imaginable. I've been pushing the archives to podcast (legally, under a SOCAN 22F tariff) for a while now. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Google Play (search for Waffles Radio)! The site also archives a summer radio fill-in/podcast on video game music and composers, Virtualosos, which ultimately wasn't sustainable.
A podcast and blog looking at the good, the bad, and the WTF of western movies, country songs, and that sort of thing. [more inside]
100 days in, I think this is "real" enough to share now -- starting on January 1, I thought I'd reinforce my good intentions with a daily podcast about sobriety, exercise, diet and generally trying to do better. Each daily podcast is at or under 3 minutes, including a 10-second "check-in" at the end. [more inside]
We Will Fix You is a semi-serious/semi-surreal/broadly dreadful advice podcast brought to you by the same team of idiots who talk about comics over at ConSequential. [more inside]
Hi-Phi Nation is the first story-driven, narrative podcast on contemporary philosophy. Every week we begin with compelling stories of ordinary and extraordinary human experiences, and transform them into an examination of philosophical ideas. We profile stories from war, crime, politics, religion, public health and policy, science, and history that raise philosophical questions, and we answer them with the help of contemporary academic philosophers. The aim of the show is to bring fans of the best narrative, story-driven podcasts like Invisibilia, Radiolab, 99% Invisible, and This American Life into philosophy. We're halfway through the first season, so subscribe and binge now!
This is a podcast featuring my husband and two colleagues, all of whom were chosen as superforecasters in the Good Judgment Project based on their performance in the tournament (previously discussed on the blue here). [more inside]
Hi there! So I started the podcast in June 2016 but wanted to wait until I had a decent amount of episodes before posting it here on Projects. In late autumn, my partner and I traveled to Asheville/Charlotte/Charleston/Savannah/Atlanta for a run of interviews that I am now finishing up in post-production. [more inside]

Listen to two guys talk about the Wire every two weeks. We often get off on tangents, most interesting, some not.
I and 3 friends, each with a different value of nerd cred, start recapping SyFy's TV series The Expanse. We are looking at each episode and talking about some of the background in the books that didn't make it into the show, looking at how human politics and society has changed (and stayed the same) as we colonize the solar system, and take apart the important details like what happened to that rat we see on the Canterbury in Episode 1. [more inside]
Professor Mark Moritz and I had a conversation about our research on Cameroonian pastoralists and Diana monkeys in Cote d'Ivoire. [more inside]

As major podcast and design nerds, my developer partner, seldomfun, and I were super excited to work with the wonderful podcast 99% Invisible on their recent website redesign. Talk about a dream project! How did this thang get made you ask? We also just posted a detailed post on our site on the process.
I'm doing a podcast where I do fully (er, mostly) produced re-tellings of classic folk tales, fairy tales, historic letters and short stories. It has been a blast so far, and I would love for you to take a listen. I'm also always open to suggestions on things to read.
MeFi's beloved Gregnog was kind enough to be the first guest for my new podcast. The whole pretense is this: I've spent 20 years in public radio, listening to people being interviewed only because they had a new book or movie or TV show coming out that week. I love Terry Gross, but her bosses would never schedule a butcher or a puppeteer or a single mom, unless there was some financial reason to do so. So that's the point of this podcast - I am going to interview "ordinary" people, to underscore the fact that there is no such thing as an ordinary person. (Here is the full manifesto behind it.) Thanks to gregnog for being a great first guest. I have six more in the can, and I have solved the audio issues that plague this first one.
My husband and I play the music for this speculative fiction audio drama, in collaboration with a crew of local writers and voices. The story is set in Boston and on the T, but involves an assortment of highly fictional plot arcs (cryptozoology, secession of the Red Line to form an independent municipality, etc). Given the T setting, the idea was to have the soundtrack music sound like buskers such as you'd encounter at the T stops. This is your chance to hear "Charlie on the MTA" performed on Irish concertina.
The Optical is a podcast revisiting the history of VFX films and technology, often through the lens of Cinefex magazine. In late 2013, I started a blog to go with an idea that I had for a podcast, to (re)read all of the print issues of Cinefex magazine in my collection, and revisit older VFX movies from the heyday of practical effects. The podcast started in January 2014, and so far, we've released 24 episodes. During that time, I've had the pleasure of interviewing great minds like Douglas Trumbull, Harrison Ellenshaw and John Van Vliet, and Howie Weed. I'm kinda proud that we've made it this far.
Denny Conn and Drew Beechum, two homebrewers with too much time on their hands, tackle a variety of subjects about brewing, the beer world, homebrewing and sloppy citizen science. It's light hearted, has a ukulele, shades of Car Talk and is all about the wackiness of beer science and the science of beer wackiness
A Podcast about the misadventures and victories of a life in the sciences. As told and lived by Graduate Students.

A persuasive Trekkie somehow convinces a franchise virgin to go on a seven-year-mission to watch every episode of every Star Trek series. Can someone fall in love with The Original Series 50 years later? Is Dr. Pulaski a better character than Dr. Crusher? What's the deal with Wesley and Geordi, anyway? And best of all, there are 158 episodes already released, so you've got plenty of thought-provoking commentary for your Original Series or Next Generation watch (or rewatch!) [more inside]
I told this story at The Moth's 'Grand SLAM' in Brooklyn a while back about the time that I was just trying to take the subway home and eat an entire container of Ben and Jerry's ice cream when my groceries spilled all over the train and I got in a screaming match with a really nice lady. [more inside]
My pal Ian and I discuss a different action movie every week. We talk about action movie tropes, montages, action scenes, and generally look at the structure and conventions of American action films. [more inside]
It is March 1921. After the U.S. Congress passes the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution, the sale and import of alcoholic beverages becomes a FELONY. The amendment does nothing to slack the thirst of a nation in the grips of the excesses of the JAZZ AGE, however, and an entire generation of CRIMINALS, LOW-LIFES, CHARLATANS, and RAKEHELLS rises to meet the challenge of supplying that thirst. THE BOOTLEGGERS follows two ROCHESTER rumrunners as they smuggle booze across Lake Ontario in an old sailboat while avoiding the LAW, the GANGSTERS, the WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN TEMPERANCE UNION, and the occasional GREAT LAKE SQUALL. [more inside]
It's a podcast about comics! Specifically, some lit nerds doing close reading/analysis of comics, with strong leanings towards the indie/diverse rather than what is new from Marvel/DC (though we cover a bit of that too). New podcasts roughly twice a month. [more inside]
New podcast about grief and loss from the NPO where I work. Conversational in tone, aimed at helping those grieving a death, and those supporting the grievers, with a particular emphasis on helping kids.
Console Obscura is a podcast dedicated to video games and the people who play them. Ephemera, nostalgia, absurdity, history, culture, arcana and trivia are all fair game. If you remember what a new power pad smelled like, or Ganon's laugh sounds like, OR If none of that rings a bell but you enjoy a group of funny children of the 80s talking trash, this podcast is for you. Game on!
